Yesterday was a beautiful day for the opening of the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival! This is our 6th year covering it. I combined Future World and World Showcase this year, for a total of just over 300 photos (cut back from nearly 1200 I took on opening day and two preview days).
The Epcot Flower and Garden Festival is my favorite time of year at Walt Disney World. It's beautiful!

We also narrated two Festival videos from this year here.
